I made a graph by taking the topmost player of 100 pages somewhat evenly spread through the ranks (from rank 1 to 10k). Two versions: One where the scale is logarithmic and another where just the log of the score is shown and the ranks go from high to low. Use the slider to see the whole graph.

This second plot shows how the line is slightly steeper in the beginning where players are fed with resources. Then it is linear for a long time. This might suggest that ordinary Illy growth is simply exponential, but conclusions are difficult to draw since the horizontal axis shows the rank and is not a time-axis. The top-players in every game always stand out which is why the line becomes steeper again near the top.
